Historian's note: Given the propensity for trialists utilizing multiple psuedonyms in this era, we note that we had an unidentified McKinnon [ii] playing at #5 on 18th April, 1891 followed by the similarly unidentified McFarlane, also a #5, exactly 7 days later. Might they be one and the same player?
